Re: Short term capital gains taxes in switzerland

I trade options overseas. I have never cared about the tax situation as you can take your eyes off the ball trying to ensure your strategies are tax minimising rather than maximising gain. It is better to make $50,000 and pay tax than to make $10,000 and pay no tax. The aim of the game is the highest net gain after tax and not , not paying tax. I treat real estate the same way but the holding period is of course longer due to time required to value add .
